Midwest Living Review
A lounge with a funky, casual atmosphere, Octane serves lots of marvelous salads and other vegan and vegetarian dishes. We tried the Low Country, which includes almonds, oranges, greens and poppyseed dressing. The menu also offers great sandwiches, such as the Ricky Ricardo (pulled pork on ciabatta with caramelized onions and peppers) and the Humongous Fungus (grilled portobello with goat cheese and pesto). Octane's creative cocktails range from The Pink Pussycat (passion fruit, rum and lemonade) to espresso martinis (vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur). Octane roasts its coffee weekly, making custom blends.
